Pioneering Brands

People. Culture. Commerce.

J. Walter Thompson has been pioneering brands since 1864. We go where others only dare. We pioneer forward, rebelling against convention. We do this with bravery, ambition and just the right amount of swagger. We tap into our 150-plus years of brand-building wisdom to build brands that last as long as we have.

If our work doesn’t move the dial against three metrics, we crumple it up, throw it in the bin and start all over. Our work has got to change the way people think, feel and act. That’s when culture starts to shift. And when culture shifts, it creates room for brands to grow.

By pioneering brands like Lux, Godrej Solution, Pepsi, and Sony Six, we keep them relevant in the modern world, while also driving their businesses.
